The Plott Hound is a talented hunting dog and at the same time very people-oriented. For these reasons, it is also often used as a family or companion dog. The sensitive dog is easy to train and has a pronounced enthusiasm for work.
He wants to be fully utilized and shows himself to be an all-around sporty breed. Because of his social behavior he is by no means suitable for kennel keeping and should also have regular contact with people because he is very affectionate.
